It’s time to start doing your sums!
It promises to be one hell of a finale to the Premier League season on Sunday and as the title race limped to it’s inevitable conclusion the relegation battle continued to throw up surprise results and has led us to an enthralling last day of suspense and anguish, here is your guide to the big games.
16 Sunderland 37 -19 36
17 Hull 37 -24 35
18 Newcastle 37 -18 34
19 Boro 37 -28 32
Aston Villa have been in awful form of late managing just one win since February so that could well play nicely into Alan Shearer’s hands. However Newcastle have won just twice away all season so it’s not just a case of turning up and expecting the team to get the three points.
A lot depends on the strength of team that Sir Alex sends out, but either way a second string eleven jam packed with internationals should on any other day secure a win at the KC stadium but Phil Brown’s men will be up for the battle. Will Cristiano Ronaldo play given that he is chasing the Premier League Golden Boot, i doubt Ferguson would allow it with the Champions League Final just three days afterwards.
This game became crucial the moment the Black Cats hit the self destruct button last night at Fratton Park. Ricky Sbragia’s side know that a point would probably suffice but they will have big problems against a Chelsea side on a run of four straight Premier League wins
I really do not hold any hope for Gareth Southgate’s men, they need a whole of results to go their way and face a West Ham side who should have enough about them to get all three points.
Final Day Verdict
I have a sneaky feeling that it will be Hull City who join West Brom and Boro in the bottom three. What are your thoughts on what should be one hell of a roller coaster ride!
